Harry Gates, son of Jas. L. Gates, Milwaukee, took a party of young people to Greenwood Friday Eve in his automobile and on the return trip the machine became unruly and in some manner jumped to the side of the roadway and Miss Maude Bruley was severely cut on a barb wire fence, and is still in dangerous condition, though improving as fast as can be expected.  Clarke Morley had a couple of fingers badly hurt.  The rest of the party escaped without injury.


M.C. Ring’s little ponies attracted no little attention at the Wausau Fair, especially little Sunshine.


John William Hommel, familiarly known as Tom, who has the distinction of being major of the 3rd Reg., city marshal, chief of the the department, weed commissioner, and least but not last, president of the Clark Co. Agricultural Society, went out Tuesday eve, last week and returned Monday evening with a bride.  He has been out in the interest of the society, on several occasions visiting fairs, and this is our first inkling that he had captured a fair one.  He was…. (words cut off) Portage and the major and bride are now residing at the Grand Avenue residence.  Uncle Andrew will undoubtedly present them with a library.  Best wishes and "Gesundheit".


Attorney Schoengarth arrived home safely last week.  He came all the way from Chicago alone.
